The FC Barcelona​ tried until the last day of market of summer the signing of Eric García. The defender of the Manchester City was the big aim of the group barcelonista to reinforce his defence. The Catalan had the seen well of Ronald Koeman and was an incorporation thought in the present, but also in the future, since only it has 19 years. Besides, the player wanted to dress of Barcelona and return to which went his house before accepting the offer 'cityzen' in 2017.

But the wish of the central and of the Barça remained in at all by fault of the City, that denied to leave him leave. The English tried to renew to the Barcelonan, that finishes agreement in 2021, but in front of his refusal preferred not receiving any compensation and expect. The ones of Pep Guardiola refused all the proposals culés that arrived and finished leaving him in staff. But this neither much less has cooled the interest of the Barça, that goes to try do with him in the merado of winter.

But the blaugrana do not go to throw the house by the window by Eric and only will offer a quantity to the drop in case that have economic muscle to do it. In other words the Catalans need to sell for fichar and only doing box before will be able to try do with the Spanish. Ronald Koeman wants another central by the shortage of players that has right now in staff and in the club understand that they have to do all what was in his hand for fichar to García.

Nevertheless, in 'Sportive World' ensure that no all voucher for the Barcelona. The culés have very clear that the only aim in the market is the one of the City and that do not want other alternatives if the British deny to leave him leave. The player finishes agreement in 2021 and in case of not arriving in January, would do it free in summer, by what the one who arrived in navidad would be a species of patch for the second half of the season.

But if the Barça has clear something is that it does not want patches of any type. In 2018 already ficharon to a footballer of low profile, as Jeison Murillo, and did not work. The Colombian hardly played with Ernesto Valverde and in the little that played did not give the level, by what does not want to commit the same error. The only signing that contemplates is the one of Eric and if it can not arrive the international by Spain, will resort to the Masia, since in the filial there are interesting alternatives that are of the taste of Koeman.

The players of the filial that like to Koeman

The Dutch trainer already has seen to the Barcelona B in several occasions this course and has remained very satisfied with Óscar Mingueza, Arnau Commas and Santiago Bouquets Mingo. To Mingueza and to Mingo already has called them for several trainings, by what knows them well, something that could be important of face to what could suceder. It will be necessary to see which of them is the elected in case of need, but what is clear is that only they or Eric will compete with Clément Lenglet, Gerard Hammered, Ronald Araújo and the incógnita Samuel Umtiti, by a place.
